Winner of ‘Best Group’ in both the Live Ireland awards and the Tradition In Review awards, The Outside Track are one of the top Celtic acts in the world.

The Outside Track’s marriage of Celtic music, song and dance has been rapturously received around the world. Hailing from Scotland, Ireland, and Cape Breton, its five
members blend fiddle, accordion, harp, guitar, flute, whistle, step-dance and vocals with breathtaking vitality.
The Outside Track are:
Fiona Black – Accordion
Teresa Horgan – Vocals, Flute
Mairi Rankin – Fiddle, Backing Vocals
Ailie Robertson – Harp, Backing Vocals
“Exceptionally good…as the album’ s dramatic arc turns, like Christmas night, more quiet and delicate towards the end, the emotional charge only grows…a deeply moving statement of humanity at Christmas” – Celtic Britfolk
